Welcome to Real Food Real Deals!
My name is Annemarie Rossi. I’m the creator of Real Food Real Deals and the author of Conquering Your Kitchen. I provide recipes and tips to help families eat real, minimally processed food while maintaining a budget.
I love to travel, and I share my suggestions about family travel destinations where healthy food is readily accessible and celebrated. We’ve eaten our way through different parts of the U.S., Canada, and Europe. Visit my Real Food Travel Gallery for details.
My husband and I have introduced our teenage children to a healthy variety of food over the years. I focus on cooking most of our food from scratch and avoiding highly processed foods. I’ve developed many easy, real food recipes that my family loves. (But full disclosure – we do indulge in some junk food, too. It’s all about balance.)

About My Recipes
Real: I use ingredients that are as close to the source as possible. I usually stay away from white flour, white sugar, and other highly processed ingredients. Many of my recipes are also gluten-free and dairy-free because I feel healthier and more energetic when I limit these ingredients.
Easy: If it takes more than 30 minutes to prepare a recipe, chances are slim that I’ll be making it. I’m a busy mom with a lot of commitments, so I can’t get bogged down by complicated, time-consuming recipes.
Affordable: I break down the cost of my recipes, so you can see how much you can save by making things yourself. Prices do vary according to where you live, but my price breakdowns will give you a general idea of the cost of different recipes.
